#Repost @natgeo ・・・ Video by @Filipe_DeAndrade @brianmoghari and @mckenziebarney Bald Eagles can throw a lot of variables your way as a wildlife filmmaker. The combination of the birds agility mixed with distance and speed can make aerial predation one of the most challenging behaviors to capture. But the payoff is totally worth it. You can almost feel the power of the predator as it collides with its prey. But this behavior was one we never witnessed until filming in Bosque Del Apache, New Mexico. Adult Bald Eagles playing with their food. Juveniles are likely to do this as they are still maturing, but what an experience it was to film an adult behaving in this way. After speaking with local biologist @goyettemegan we learned that adults do sometimes in fact play with their food. For an animal that commands so much respect in the avian world, who would of known they get their kicks this way.

🐾🐾🐾Today's Species:🐾🐾🐾 🔵Patagonian Mara (Dolichotis patagonum)🔵 🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹 This relative of the guinea pig is found only in Argentina and is the fourth largest species of rodent in the world! Looking somewhat similar to a jackrabbit, the Patagonian mara has specially compressed toes that make each of its feet act like a hoof - this, in turn, helps it to run across its shrubby habitat in a fashion similar to that of an antelope. Members of this species are highly vocal herbivores, feeding on grass and fruit in groups as they communicate with one another through a variety of different squeaks and grunts. Patagonian maras are especially known for their odd reproductive behavior, which combines monogamy and communal breeding. Males and females form life-long mating pairs and work together to rear offspring - far from being solitary pairs, however, mara parents typically typically join together with upwards of 25 other pairs to raise their young in communal dens. Each pair takes turns to enter the den and tend to their young while the rest of the parents graze along the periphery of the area, watching for predators. Interestingly, males are known to regularly scent-mark their mates with urine in order to ward off other males. The female understandably is not fond of this practice, often aggressively spraying urine in the male's face in response! Due to hunting and habitat loss, the Patagonian mara is listed as a Near Threatened species. 🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹🐹 ❄Follow @fauna.kingdom to learn about a new, weird, and interesting species of animal every day!❄

With breeze flowing through open windows, I smelled them before I saw them. I looked to my right and witnessed endless acres of bluebonnets, their beauty and delicate fragrance, a visceral experience. I spent the next four days in those fields, befriending a ranch owner, and returning year after year.

This strange little creature (Marseniopsis mollis) is a sea slug, but not a nudibranch. It belongs to another group called lamellarians, which have a thin shell inside their mantle. Marseniopsis protects itself from predators - probably mostly sea stars - by concentrating homarine, a noxious chemical found in its own prey, in its own tissues. I photographed this one at Jenny Island, near the southern end of The Gullet, the infamous channel between Adelaide Island and the mainland of the Antarctic Peninsula. #lindbladexpeditions #natgeoexpeditions #Antarctic #marinelife #seaslug #underwater_world_ #underwateremotions #strangeanimals_ #naturegeography

You can see the most unique sea creatures muck diving in shallow waters. This is the striated frog fish that uses a lure that he controls on the top of his head like a fishing line to catch meals. #flscubagirls #blueheronbridge #muckdiving #striatedfrogfish #nauticam #underwatermacro #underwaterphoto #underwaterphotography #macrounderwater #photooftheday #natgeotravel #natgeowild #natgeounderwater

"A recent study showed that elephants are extremely aware and compassionate—frequently consoling each other. When upset, elephants flare their ears, erect their tail, and squeal, roar and trumpet. Consoling involves chirping, caressing with trunks and placing a trunk in the other’s mouth. With the trunk being the most sensitive and important part of an elephant, placing a trunk in the upset elephants mouth shows that this friend is not a danger.  When in a crowd one elephant becomes distressed, all the others all run over and console the distressed elephant." - jonlieffmd.com . . . #elephant #animals #animal #elephants #wildlife #elefante #africa #southafrica #elefant #babyelephant #wild #wildlifephotography #conservation #wilderness #nationalpark #animalphotography #naturelovers #naturephotography #wildlife_perfection #animalelite #nature_perfection #nature_shooters #nationalgeographic #travelphotography #animallovers #african_portraits #allnatureshots #travel #wu_africa #natgeowild

#Repost from @rivada_ ... #GoldMorning . Pertama kali tau air terjun ini dari temannya teman, jadi temanku punya temen di pugung Melaya (kepanjangan cerita). . Waktu yang ditempuh dari pusat kota Krui kurang lebih 2 jam dengan kendaraan bermotor. Lalu 1 jam lebih sedikit jalan masuk hutan, menyusuri sungai yang penuh dengan bebatuan. Perjalan yang lumayan sulit aku hadapi, lelahnya, jatuh bangun aku mengejarmu (alah malah nyanyi). . . Singkat cerita, perjalan panjang dengan terjangan arus sungai dipenuhi bebatuan yang terbalut lumut-lumut manja, seketika terbayarkan setelah dari kejauhan aku melihatnya. gemericik air yang turun dengan segala keindahannya, bias-bias air yang terbawa hingga jarak yang cukup jauh menerpa wajah serta bagian tubuhku yang lain, membuatku hanya berucap syukur kepada Tuhan Yang Maha Kaya. Rahmat Tuhan yang begitu luar biasa. . . Kita tidak perlu saling memerintah untuk menjaganya, saling tuduh menuduh siapa yang mengotorinya. Dengan kesadaran dari kita menerapkan 7 unsur Sapta Pesona. .  Sapta Pesona merupakan jabaran konsep sadar wisata yang terkait dengan dukungan dan peran masyarakat sebagai tuan rumah dalam upaya untuk menciptakan lingkungan dan suasana kondusif yang mampu mendorong tumbuh dan berkembangnya industri pariwisata melalui perwujudan tujuh unsur dalam Sapta Pesona.  7 unsur Sapta Pesona tersebut adalah Aman, Tertib, Bersih, Sejuk, Indah, Ramah, Kenangan. Yang mempunyai pengertian dan bentuk aksi dari masing-masing unsur tersebut. . . . Katanya lagi "hits ngets" air terjun ini..

Related to coral and jellyfish (phyla Cnidaria), anemones are actually so rad. These lil carnivoures are armed with specialized stinging cells (cnidocytes), that range from harmless to "OUCH!". At times these animals will pick fights with neighbouring anemones, ripping the skin off their enemies 🔫 #anemones #cnidaria #ocean #docks #britishcolumbia #animals #sea #sunshinecoast #sonya6000 #justgoshoot #50mm #wildlife #earthfocus #natgeowild #wildlifeplanet

As the UK's largest wading bird, the Curlew is as beautiful to look at as it is to listen to. Their beautiful shrilling calls echo across the water at first light as they fly inches over the surface.

So saddened to hear yesterday of the loss of the beautiful Vang from @zoosvictoria Melbourne Zoo. To reach 46 years and long exceed the 28 year norm for life expectancy of her species is a testament to the dedication and care of her keepers. My thoughts go out to all staff who cared for this beautiful girl during her life time.
